    PILS are emerging auxin transporters that can modulate the intracellular auxin distribution in Arabidopsis. The authors now link these proteins to a developmental process, the apical hook opening in response to light, and to phytochrome signalling.

  • Perspective |

    Before maize-based agriculture, there existed in eastern North America a crop system that is now only known from archaeological data. Present research is exploring whether these crops, which sustained ancient societies for millennia, can be re-domesticated.

Trouble brewing

Ethiopian coffee farming faces major challenges in the decades to come, not least due to climate change. Significant resilience, and even a substantial increase in coffee production area, could be acheived by precise and timely relocation of coffee-growing areas. But longer-term prospects are less optimistic.
